Popular compositions of the late master were sung by some of the disciples of the late Pandit Bhimsen Joshi accompanied by various anecdotes from his life. The Sada Yenna Hridaya and the soulful Nambide Nina Naada Devateya from the Kannada movie Sandhya Raga were some of his famous songs sung on the occasion.

The audience was also enthralled by Marathi abhangs (compositions) for which the master was also well-known. Udupi dancers graced the stage to numbers like Neenyako Ninna Hangyako composed by Purandara Dasa.  One of the most notable moments of the show was when the son of the master himself, Srinivas Joshi took to the stage. 

Governor H R Bhardwaj inaugurated the show. He spoke about the glory and greatness of Joshi’s music. Minister for Kannada and culture Govind Karjol, Vice Chancellor of Music and Performing Arts University, Mysore H N Dorai and the Chairman of Karnataka Sangeeta Nritya Academy, Pandit N Vadavati, were the other guests.

The show was jointly organised by Raj Bhavan and Doordorshan Kendra, Bangalore.
